Honeybee pollinating water lilly
Honey bees are generalist foragers, visiting a wide variety of flowers. They pollinate flowers of many different species and genera, benefiting not only crops but also gardens and wildflowers. Their value as pollinators is incalculable when you include not only the $14,000,000 worth of crops in the US, but also the seeds and fruit provided for wildlife to eat. Without pollinators such as honeybees, bats, butterflies, and moths, flowering plants would disappear from Earth in a few years.
All of these pollinators deserve our respect and protection, it is in our own self interest that they continue to thrive. Unfortunately, many species are disappearing at an alarming rate do the the over use of pesticides and habitat loss. One organization dedicated to the protection and conservation of pollinators is the Xerces Society. Check out their website for ideas of what you can do to help save our pollinators.
